Gary Lynn "Sudsy" Sutherland (born September 27, 1944) is a former American baseball player. He played college baseball at the University of Southern California and later played 13 seasons in Major League Baseball, principally as a second baseman (717 games) and shortstop (164 games), from 1966 to 1978.
During his 13-year career in the major leagues, Sutherland compiled a .243 batting average but became known for his finesse in turning the double play. He led the National League's second basemen with 110 double plays turned during the 1969 season. In 1969, he also scored the first run in franchise history for the Montreal Expos and recorded the first putout in a regular season major league game played in Canada. Sutherland's career included stints with the Philadelphia Phillies (1966–68), Montreal Expos (1969–71), Houston Astros (1972–73), Detroit Tigers (1974–76), Milwaukee Brewers (1976), San Diego Padres (1977) and St. Louis Cardinals (1978).
